Many of the general public are now aware of autism through the Media, TV, charity events. However there is still a long way to go until children, young people and adults with autism/who are autistic are accepted, understood and included by society. Sadly pressure is often put on people with autism to try harder to fit in- to be more social, to have more friends, to ‘behave’ like everyone else even when their senses are bombarded by too much stimuli.
For this year’s Autism Awareness month I’ve teamed up with a group of special educators to promote Autism Acceptance as well as Awareness. From April 1st to April 8th you can CLICK HERE for lots of FREE educational Autism Resources. Here’s my latest FREE Autism Resource– “How Autism Affects Me” pages for older students.
